    Trials No. 4 Mk I (T) Markings

    Good morning! I recently had a friend send me some photos of the markings on his Trials No. 4. A few markings on the butt are a bit beyond my knowledge, so I thought I'd throw a few photos up on here for the group! Any help is appreciated!

    It's a guess, but I think it could well be 'Base Workshops Singapore' & the month & year of the date it went through there....

    That would definitely jive pretty well with the markings!

    Makes sense - my 4T is marked in a similar format for "34th Base Workshops Catterick August 1968"

    Mine are not the best, but they are not too bad. I can think of lots of Enfields I'd rather have but instead of constantly striving for more, sometimes it's good to be satisfied with what one has...

    Nice rifle, it's a shame they stamped the Englandicon markings across those lovely Enfield trials markings...

    A shame they restruck the serial number too, albeit a different "they".

    It is indeed! I've often wondered at the mindset of people stamping over other markings on these rifles. There's so much open space you'd think they could've found somewhere else!

    As the old saying goes, "You can't pay people to care", and too many don't.
